Our solar and lunar hearth worship calendars begin at the Winter Solstice, proceeding around the Wheel to Samhain, where we then travel through the darkness and await the coming new year. We follow the eightfold year in a Celtic & Indo-European inspired fashion, celebrating the High Days with friends.
The lunar calendar is reckoned by the first full moon after the Winter Solstice. If this full moon falls within the Solstice Tide, there will be a blue moon in the year. Blue moons are the third full moon in a season, as determined by the solstices and equinoxes.
